Cara Brett And Kansas City Saturday Plans
It's still early and there's a lot of things to do on this mild Kansas City Saturday . . . Or we might stay on this futon and just think about Cara Brett all day.
Either way, here are what I think might be the most interesting Kansas City events today . . .
Mayor Sly's Saturday Night Party For Otherwise Flash Mobbing Teens
The media blast . . .
Sly’s Rock the Block: The second annual Rock the Block party is a Union Station south parking lot celebration of the 2013 Mayor’s Nights programs. The block will be rocking from 4-8 p.m. Saturday with free admission, free entertainment and free food for the first 2,000 attendees! From 6-8 p.m., Sly will turn up the music with a live performance by The Sequel, featuring members from national recording artists Lo-Key. DJ Fresh will close out the night with tunes from 8 p.m. to midnight. Parking is free at Union Station.
TKC NOTE: All of the cash spent on this program really didn't stop Country Club Flash Mob Violence given many frightening outbursts this Summer and more than a few businesses fleeing this town's premiere entertainment district.
CELEBRATE KANSAS CITY NITRATES AND HISTORY!!!
More than any other event in Kansas City, the logo for this party is rather apropos:
The media blast . . .
Hot Dog Festival: To celebrate the “historical connection between baseball and the hot dog,” the Negro Leagues Baseball Museum will play host to the inaugural Heart of America Hot Dog Festival from noon to 9 p.m. on Saturday. Your ticket will get you admission to the museum in the 18th & Vine Jazz District, along with hot dogs and brats and other baseball munchies. Sports mascots will be on hand to entertain the children, before live music takes center stage. Midnight Star and Julian Vaughn will headline the outdoor stage. For ticket details, click here.
And then . . .
Tossing Salad In Kansas City (Ewwwww)
The media blast regarding Kansas City rabbit food . . .
Feast for Farmers: Local chefs from eight Kansas City restaurants will serve small bites, local libations and a silent auction at the Feast for Farmers, which begins at 6:30 p.m. Saturday in the West Bottoms. Seating will begin at 8 p.m. in the midst of the high stone arches of the 12th Street Bridge viaduct. a three-course dinner will be prepared by the eight chefs, including four from Downtown eateries Lidia’s Kansas City, The Farmhouse, Blue Bird Bistro and Little Freshie.

And so there are a great many options for local life today, even if it's safer and far more fun to just stay on the Internets and complain about everything . . .
